than us, but we are all equal. the third one is working together and i think about the giants, we're all for the team, not all together not as if we are color blind and color doesn't exist but with our diversity. the fourth is with power and authority, the person who stands up and says this is what needs to happen, like a school principal who says we're not going to let kids go around the school saying that's okay, all these things are needed. >> i like that, that's great. something that really resonated with me that tom said, if you simply tolerate diversity you are aspiring to mediocrity. can you talk about the ambassadors, adults taking an active role to intervene when we witness bullying. >> all of us are humbled by the virus, how systemic it's become. how do you get your hands around that? for me it's top down and bottom up. we are authority figures and what we do for our children and that's care, but we need to empower them to become the leaders they are waiting to become. this notion of youth adult partnership is esoteric in its term but on the ground how do you operatio

's version of the death toll. to us, this picture seemed to is up the military coup that began in july: an army bulldozer shredding a poster of morsi who was the first and only freely elected president of egypt. vice president mohammed al bare day, the winner of the nobel peace prize, quit in protest today. the white house condemned the violence. egypt has, of course, but a key u.s. ally and a partner in piece with israel. we have a team of correspondents covering this story beginning with charlie d'agata in cairo. charlie? >> reporter: scott, today, quite frankly, the streets of cairo looked like a war zone, and if anything, security is clamping down even tighter tonight around the city. the main protest camp outside the rabaa al adawiya mosque was the scene of the worst carnage. the makeshift field hospital quickly filled up and severely wounded protesters were carried upstairs to new rooms as volunteers tried to give what little emergency care they could. in other parts of the building, the bodies piled up as protesters struggled to keep up with the task of giving names to the dead.

to teach us. what would need the equivalent of some kind of mass destruction caused by a force that we don't understand, and i came upon the idea of mass extinctions which are indeed the worst kind of disaster that could ever happen to the environment. the more that i researched them the more that i read scientific papers and talk to scientists, i realize that actually one of the main characteristics of the mass extinction is the there are always survivors and that was when i really began to change how i understood what this book was going to be about. so let me start by telling you a little bit about the destruction. a mass extinction is actually a scientific term of art which refers to any events where more than 75% of all species on the planet right out and usually these take about a million years. and so when you look at them, that they are taking place in geological time. they are not a quick thing that we can see in a human lifetime. one of the things that links massive extinctions in their and five in the past half a billion years or so is that most of them are caused by climate cha
